Frank Stella The Symphony, 1990 is a gorgeous example of the artist’s non-representational style. This work was commissioned in 1989 by the United States Department of State’s Art in Embassies Program for its twenty-fifth anniversary. This department was created in 1964 to promote original work by American artists in the homes of United States ambassadors, of which this work hung in forty-one. This work stands at nearly seven feet tall, making its composition of abstract forms even more engrossing. At the bottom of the composition, a plane that performs as a colorless brick wall. On top of this, forms in white, blue, black and pink dance upward into a sky of deep yellow, green and orange. The top of the piece is dominated by monochromatic winding forms. As its title suggests, the work engulfs the viewer similarly to the way a symphony engulfs its audience.
Created in 1990, this lithograph and screenprint on white Saunders mould-made paper is hand-signed by Frank Stella (Massachusetts, 1936 - ) in pencil in the lower right image and numbered from the edition of 175 in pencil in the lower right image.
